Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: 2-12-70 Ungano's - The Mystery Show....

The Ungano's show, to the best of my close knowledge, did not take place. I attended the 2-11,13,and 14 shows (early and late). I never missed a NYC Dead show that I know of. The Ungano's ad was widely noticed, and every NY head went up there to try to score tickets, myself included. I was told at the door in no uncertain terms that this show had been cancelled due to conflicts with BGP. No tickets. They could have proudly said, "sold out," but they did not. I know at least a dozen people who tried and got the same response. Further, no one that I knew went or even pretended to have gone.

Mind you, my take is no more gospel than anyone elses, but I surely would have heard some report, some gossip, someone crowing about having been there. Nada.

But I can at least confirm, Mr. Owsley that there were two shows per night. Ad I can confirm the Action Theater, Rock Palce, and 11-16-70 Fillmore East shows, all of which I attended. With the Capitol shows a week earlier, it was Grateful Dead heaven.

Well that pretty much confirms it then. No Ungano's show.

So much for that mystery. Thanks, GoP
